Swan Couple Dances Together After Spending Weeks Apart

In this heartwarming video from Dordrecht, Netherlands, a swan reunites with her partner after spending three weeks apart due to illness. As soon as animal rescue volunteer Roland van Goch released the now healthy swan, the pair lovingly embraced and appeared to dance on the water.

“Highlighting the strength of emotions the birds have for one another, the recovering female headed straight for its partner when she was released back into the water by animal rescue workers.

The bird had fallen ill with botulism, a food poisoning caused by bacteria-produced in toxins, and around three weeks earlier could barely lift its head.”
